I personally tried the otah from the stall’s outlet at Kovan FC (can’t remember the date).  What I loved about its otah is that if you ordered the prawns otah, you actually get a few small pieces of prawns; and if you ordered the squid otah, you actually get a few small slices of squid inside your otah.  You get the idea. 

And you would think like you have to pay more than S$1 to get a stick of otah like this.  Well, you can get it at S$0.60!!  Excellent value for money!

They also have nasi lemak, assam fish, ikan bilis, chilli sauce, etc. for sale at their stall. If you want, you can ask them to cater for you or even cater the food for your BBQ.  Check their website for pricing details and order form.

Fa Ji Minced Meat Noodles

Fa Ji Minced Meat Noodles
Stall No. #01-05 Hougang St 21 Market & Food Centre
Opening Hours: 7am to 10.15pm, closed on Wednesday

I had a bowl of minced meat noodles here on 20 December 2007.  A bowl of noodles will cost you a minimum of S$2.70 (one of the cheapest minced meat noodles in town) and a maximum of S$3.20.

I, small eater that I am, ordered the smallest one with my favourite bee hoon (a type of noodles).  What came with my bee hoon were minced pork, 3 fishballs, 3 slices of fish cake and 1 pork ball with extra vinegar of course.

My verdict? Great value for money; wish they have given me a few slices of sliced pork; more sourish vinegar and spicier chilli.  Overall, the taste is not too bad really; I just love my vinegar that’s all. 😀  Definitely a will-come back again.

Hougang St 21 Market and Food Centre

This is one of the stalls that sells very unique fruit juices.  Imagine having a glass of dou miao (pea shoots) combined with a bottle of yakult.  It’s supposedly good for your skin. And this glass of juice will only set you back for S$2.50!

Other unique flavours include beetroot juice (for slimming – S$2.50), bittergourd and apple (S$2), wheatgrass (S$3).  This stall also mixes potatoes and even cactus in its fruit juices! How unique can you get!
